Managing Population Health: A Supply and Demand Challenge
8:30am - 9:30amWednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Population health management often has more to do with the social determinants of health than clinical care. Healthcare systems must work with community organizations to develop and implement programs to meet those needs. The skills required to inventory needs (demand), identify available resources (supply), and contract for and deliver those products and services in an efficient and affordable manner are essential supply chain skills. Yet, many healthcare systems fail to utilize the capabilities that exist within their own organization when structuring and implementing population management initiatives. Learn how to leverage your supply chain to optimize the effectiveness and efficiency of your organization’s strategic work in this growing area.
